HIGH FREQUENCY FACIAL FAQ
All high frequency facial machines function by using a glass high frequency electrode to treat various contours of the face and body. When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current passes through the neon, or argon gas filled glass electrode, causing it to emit a subtle glow and buzzing noise. Depending on the inert gas that they are filled with, the electrodes produce either a neon red/orange or violet/blue light. Traditionally, acne prone skin is treated with violet and aging skin is treated with red, however, recent studies show that both are effective regardless of the skincare concern.
Your skin will feel and look better right away due to the increased circulation and collagenproduction but since the main objective of the HF Facial is to kill the bacteria that causes acne it will take a couple of days for the inflammation to improve once the bacteria is dead.
The facelifting results will last as long as the collagen production is increased and that should be around 28 days since your skin regenerates every 28 days.
A High frequency facial does not hurt and if it does that means you have to lower the settings on your device. You will feel a small buzzing sensation then the arc hits your skin but it should not be painful.
